Fire is the most unpredictable and dangerous accidents that may occur in our environment. Ignition is one of the essentail fire properties of a material. The time to ignition depends of the species, moisture content, inherent variability of wood as a natural material. Once ignition has occurred, a layer of char is formed as the wood burns. The wood is converted to charcoal which has no strength.
